Company SJ and Abbey Theatre, Ireland

Beckett Sa Creig: Laethanta Sona (Happy Days)

By Samuel Beckett
(Translated by Micheál Ó Conghaile)

Company SJ bring their aesthetic tools of language, site, the body and visual art to bear on Beckett’s haunting exploration of human relationships in Happy Days. Mícheal Ó Chongaile translates, with Bríd ní Neachtain as Winnie and Raymond Keane as Willie. Laethanta Sona emerges from the landscape, language and people of Inis Oírr, off the west coast of Ireland. This piece will resonate for lovers of Beckett, language and the visual arts. English subtitles will be incorporated within the aesthetic image of the piece, creating a dialogue between the two languages. The Irish language seeps into the searing beauty of Beckett’s imagery.

Tugann an comhlacht drámaíochta, Company SJ, uirlisí éagsúla na healaíne le chéile go cumasach – teanga, suíomh clochach Inis Oírr, an cholainn daonna agus físeanna beo – chun iniúchadh taibhsiúil a dhéanamh ar an gcaidreamh daonna i ndráma cáiliúil Beckett, Happy Days / Laethanta Sona atá aistrithe ag Micheál Ó Conghaile. Cuireann Bríd Ní Neachtain i bpáirt Winnie agus Raymond Keane i bpáirt Willie scoth na haisteoireachta inár láthair.

Amach díreach as broinn an t-saibhreas teanga agus aníos as creaga clochacha Inis Oírr atá ar chósta thiar na hÉireann a thagann an léiriú bíogúil seo ina gcuirfidh lucht leanúna Beckett, na Gaeilge agus na físealaíne spéis faoi leith ann.

Beidh fotheidil Bhéarla comhshnaidhmthe in íomhánna aeistéitiúil an léiriú ag cruthú comhrá agus agallamh beirte idir an dá theanga. Luíonn an Ghaeilge agus áilleacht grian scallta íomhánna Beckett go compordach teolaí i mbaclainn a chéile sa léiriú.
